I come from the hills of California. After going to Columbia Community College, I headed to UC Berkeley and studied English Literature. I earned my Master's degree in Book Publishing at Portland State University.
While earning my degree, I was a staff member at Ooligan Press, where I worked with the Outreach and Project Development team on planning an annual conference. I interned for Scout Kalah McCaffrey at Franklin and Siegel and have a strong interest in international publishing. Additionally, I interned for Literary Agent Laura Bradford for a year, where a book I worked on sold in a two-book deal to Sourcebooks in 2018. I ran Willamette Writers events for a year and a half, and love event management.
I’m also a writer, and dream of becoming a published author. I write primarily young adult fantasy, but I’m cooking up adult and middle grade fantasy novels, too. The fantasy genre is my true love after growing up with Harry Potter, and I own that proudly.
As far as reading, my tastes vary. I love a lot of different kinds of books. Some of my favorite books are: The Ten Thousand Doors of January, The Last Namsara, Onyx and Ivory, A Court of Thorns and Roses, Letters to the Lost, My Oxford Year, Queen of Blood, and Again, But Better.
